About the property

When you book your stay at MoJo Valley, you are guaranteed an enjoyable stay. Each reservation comes with one dozen farm fresh eggs from hens found on the property. The home comes with a queen bed and a sleeper sofa, as well as a full kitchen and bath. The home will be furnished with basic pantry items, a half gallon of milk, and orange juice. The nearest grocery store is approximately 15 minutes away and the nearest winery is just over a mile.

This home is located on our 21-acre, wooded property and our home is a short walk away (400 ft). While it is not visible due to the woods, we are available if needed. When you arrive, you will be given keys to the property and we will not bother you unless our assistance is needed. The cottage does not come with wifi or a television.

The home is located less than a mile-and-a-half from Blue Sky Winery and less than five miles from Owl Creek Vineyard. The Shawnee Hills Wine Trail is located just half-a-mile from the home.

Great spot for a relaxing weekend away. Perfect location close to several wineries, tucked away in the woods. The house was clean and the hosts thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. Would definitely recommend!

Quiet & Quite

  • 4 of 5

This is an excellent place for a quiet weekend. We enjoyed the sounds of the woods in the evening and the morning. No city sounds. Very private and just a good place to relax. The little extras in the bath and kitchen were a plus. Thanks for the stay.

Very pretty, quiet, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We came down to southern Illinois for a wedding and stayed at the cottage. It is very secluded and next to the wineries. I would highly recommend the cottage for a nice getaway.
